A little romance – a sonnet from the pen of poet, translator and editor Jonathan Galassi, whose collection Left-handed is wide-ranging in its forms and feelings.

Shine Riches, a little dollop of your shineis everything I need to make my day:cheek of polished apple, wink of wine,forehead semaphore along my way;or torque of body gilded in the spray,toothy, tonguey, stretched-saliva grin,melon water sliding off a chin,eyelash droplet where a sunbeam plays.Slick of foam that glistens on the rim,coffee cream curl, baby oil spill, oh,and gabardine lap-luster, zipper shimmer,moiré patent-leather afterglow:I hoard it, all the gold that makes you mine(like finger ink spot, gaudy brilliantine).

Shine
 
Riches, a little dollop of your shine
is everything I need to make my day:
cheek of polished apple, wink of wine,
forehead semaphore along my way;
or torque of body gilded in the spray,
toothy, tonguey, stretched-saliva grin,
melon water sliding off a chin,
eyelash droplet where a sunbeam plays.
Slick of foam that glistens on the rim,
coffee cream curl, baby oil spill, oh,
and gabardine lap-luster, zipper shimmer,
moiré patent-leather afterglow:
I hoard it, all the gold that makes you mine
(like finger ink spot, gaudy brilliantine).
